Cilantro Lime Rice

20 Aug


I attempted to make this once before, but it didn’t quite turn out right.  So, with the limes and cilantro I got in this week’s guacamole pack from Bountiful Baskets, I wanted to give it a try again.  This time yielded much better results.  I used my steamer to cook the rice,


Cilantro Lime Rice

What you need:

1 cup long grain white rice
Water, amount will vary according to package directions or use of steamer or rice cooker
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Juice f 1 lime
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cilantro

How to make it:

Prepare the rice according to the package directions or the directions of your steamer/rice cooker, adding the bay leaf in with the rice and water while it cooks.  Fluff rice.  Remove bay leaf.

In a small bowl, mix together the oil, lime juice, salt, and cilantro.  Pour over cooked rice and mix in well.  Serve warm.
